I could be wrong, but my understanding is that freecache can't be used to *hide* content, legal or not. The originating website is visible in the URL and must remain up or freecache will stop caching the file. If the content really is illegal presumably it will eventually disappear from the originating website.

it's not that hiding the files is the problem, it's the huge spike in bandwidth from the files. I am currently sending out about 40Mbps on one of my caches due to a popular(?) 400MB file. I don't mind sharing the bandwidth for something useful like archive.org or the mars rover stuff, but this is ridiculous. If you look at the detailed stats page, you'll see what i'm talking about.
